Farouk’s House of India
...to the finest Indian restaurant Richmond, Virginia has to offer. Your host, Chhinda Sandhu, invites you to the Carytown shopping district to enjoy the authentic and exotic Indian cuisine that Farouk's has served Richmonders for forty years.
Food passable. Service not great. Has fond memories of this place.
The food here is good, and the staff is nice and friendly. However, even with the groupon I think I was overcharged, as $25 was subtracted from our total rather than it being the cost of 2 entrees.
We went for Valentine's celebration. We were seated on time and received immediate service. The host was very courteous and helpful with answering our questions about the menu. The meal was delicious from appetizer to entrees to dessert. The food came out in a timely fashion, hot and plentiful. One could tell this is authentic Indian food done exceptionally well with recipes perfected over the years. This place will become a go to place for us. I have already recommended it to two friends. There was plenty of room in our seating for quiet conversation. I look forward to returning again soon for another excellent meal.
I note that this restaurant seems to block Open Table reservations from 6-8 pm, therefore, I booked an 8 pm not realizing this. When we arrived on a Wednesday expecting a very busy restaurant, there were only two other diners. Very frustrating as we waited to get the reservation but could have walked in any time and been seated!
The service was good, food was great but the wine list was awful!
I had the best dinner here. I'd been craving Indian food, and this place was fantastic! The service was attentive without being invasive. I ordered shrimp vindaloo and garlic naan and both were amazing: super spicy but not overwhelming.
